Curtin Primary testimonial Lynette Dickinson has been supporting students in my classes at Curtin Primary for the last year and a half. She teaches yoga, mindfulness and meditation on a Friday which makes for such a relaxing end to the week. My students enjoy it so much that if we miss out on a session due to school commitments they often urge me to call and organise a make-up session. In our time with Lynette we start by focusing on others, by building mindfulness, empathy and discussing what it is to be a positive global citizen. We then focus on ourselves in yoga to build flexibility, strength and reducing negative thoughts. Finally, we let ourselves go in guided meditation giving the students a rare opportunity in the business of primary school to relax and just enjoy the quiet and stillness. Lynette instantly made connections and built positive rapport with the students with her kind and caring nature. While the sessions benefit all students, they have also been able to reduce one student’s stress induced pseudo seizures. For many students her visits are the highlight of their week.
